carrying secretary of defense leon panetta to australia. pentagon spokesman george little told reporters secretary panetta asked the white house to postpone general allen's appointment as supreme allied commander in europe. >> on sunday the federal bureau of investigation referred to the department of defense a matter involving general john allen, commander of the international security assistance force, or i.s.a.f., in afghanistan. >> reporter: the matter involves 20,000 to 30,000 pages of information the f.b.i. delivered sunday to the pentagon's inspector general. one senior official says the documents include a couple of hundred e-mails between general allen and jill kelley, the same tampa socialite who triggered the petraeus scandal. the e-mails discovered in kelley's files date back to 2010 when allen served as deputy commander for u.s. central command in tampa. pentagon and f.b.i. sources have characterized the e-mails as "inappropriate" and "flirtatious." one senior official said, for example, kelley would write something like "saw you on television, you were terrific." allen woul

viqueira at the white house, there's been speculation that leon panetta was expected to be replaced at defense. how much does this now complicate matters for the president? >> a good question. i think that specktation continues. obviously, we're talking about a lot of different positions if you want to talk about cabinet agencies in the second term. obviously secretary of state clinton this, some sitting senators who have been known to harbor some ambitions for some of these cabinet positions, where they end up, a big parlor game there. i think just at first blush they're going to take their time with the cia posting. i don't know if it directly affects what leon panetta is going to do. obviously, leon panetta has a lot of institutional knowledge hague not only served at the white house and in congress but as the dci, director of central intelligence before moving over to the defense department. so all of that very much up in the air. i would imagine that they're sort of going to stand pat where they are with by all accounts a very competent individual, the deputy director stepping
